Interactive Data Dashboard

The Nashua DPHCS is excited to announce the launch of our data dashboard hosted on LiveStories! This data dashboard presents a broad range of public health indicators through an interactive web-based application. The dashboard houses the most up to date health data available for the GNPHR and will be continuously updated as new data becomes available. This collaborative platform provides data from the community level to national data, and tables and figures can be customized by age, gender, race/ethnicity, geographic location, etc. to explore different trends and patterns. In addition, the dashboard provides information about highlighted community activities and areas of interest. This dashboard is a powerful launch point for data-driven conversations at the community level - check it out by clicking the button below!

Hepatitis A - Protect Yourself with Vaccination 

Hepatitis A infection is a vaccine-preventable viral infection that infects the liver. Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is contagious and is transmitted when a person unknowingly ingests the virus from objects, food or drinks contaminated by small, undetected amounts of stool from an infected person. 

Symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-colored bowel movements, joint pain, and jaundice. The infection causes inflammation of the liver (hepatitis), and severe infections can result in liver failure and even death.
